Feedback on the Tracing Center’s Faith-Based Programs

“James was a real hit at our Quaker meeting. His presentation was one of the best we’ve ever had, and we are so grateful that he took the time to come all the way to be with us.”

— Participant in a Quaker meeting outside Philadelphia

The Tracing Center speaker “did an amazing  job, somehow managing to interpret American history in a different, very credible light, which was  something none of us had thought about or understood before. The congregation gave him the most enthusiastic applause I can ever remember; at least half of us standing up to clap (as in “standing ovation”). We all learned a lot more than we ever imagined. Really a memorable event!”

“We really must, as Episcopalians, [ask] ‘How are we complicit?’ and ‘What does that complicity mean?’ My own concern is … to acknowledge this reality and look at our own history and say, ‘I’m sorry.’”

“For me, this is not abstraction. It’s so much about people and how they’ve been hurt, and how they continue in a variety of ways to be hurt.”

— Former Presiding Bishop Frank T. Griswold, Episcopal Church

“I cried during the film, laughed with Bill’s humor and listened to Holly’s searing story of engaging her family’s past. … I was so inspired by this film’s provocative, though loving ideas… YOU MUST have them talk to your congregation.”

— Pastor Judy Hanlon, Hadwen Park Congregational Church (Worcester, Mass.)
